Exotic Aquaponic Garden
Exotic has a lot of "firsts" under its belt, including being the first Dive Resort on Malapascua and the first to find and dive with the Thresher Sharks. We are now proud to add another firdt to our list. We have a fully functioning and highly productive Aquaponic Garden!
Aquaponics refers to a food production system that couples aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as fish, crayfish, snails or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) whereby the nutrient rich aquaculture water is fed to hydroponic grown plant, involving nitrifying bacteria for converting ammonia into nitrates.
Our aim is to have a fully self sufficient Herb & Vegetable Garden to bring only the freshest, organic and highly nutritious food to our guest!
Feel free to ask any of our staff for a tour of the system!
